Starting in the 1930s, zany romantic comedies were classified as “Screwballs”. Tonight’s feature is Twentieth Century: A flamboyant Broadway impresario who has fallen on hard times tries to get his former lover, now a Hollywood diva, to return and resurrect his failing career.

Starring Carole Lombard & John Barrymore, directed by Howard Hawks.

Plus: bonus screwy short subjects: Laurel & Hardy, three stooges, little rascals, music and more!

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. The films are shown in the Library’s Meeting Room. Doors open half hour before the film’s start. Light refreshments will be served. Admission is free.
